3:17 pm
locked up but for the criminal justice system to work well especially victims and witnesses of crime must feel safe to contact our law enforcement agencies. that's what this due process it all about. disevenly tanking our system so all our residents regardless of their status don't have to hesitate to call for help human resources i want to thank again, the community members in the room. yo ask you to stand up today. we've come back a second time to make sure we do the right thing. in all our neighborhoods that depend on strong relationship with the law enforcement to cope our families and communities
3:18 pm
save. thank you for standing up. today everyone agrees with s con is a poor safety tool but it wasn't the police chief that brought the legislation forward nor the attorney it wasn't even my office it was the residents. community members and their tireless less advocates the very people who have to debating deal with the program they're the ones that brought this legislation forward. i especially want to thank the d b advocates who worked hard so women are not afraid to pick up the phone to protect themselves. colleagues you know i've dubbed this ordinance the due process for all ordinances. i feel strongly that any carve
3:19 pm
out stops victims of diaphragm from reaching out because of fear of voice. i'm president this to go through today. i'm thinking about particularly about 5 encourages women who came to public comments 3 weeks ago and said they were victimized and end up in the deportation system. it's women who have that fear and come despite their fear before the cameras and to make sure we're providing the grandparent protection. so why i may support carve out exceptions formal due process i don't think it ammunition to
3:20 pm
allow can you ever outs so people are afraid to pick up the phones. so while i could vote for carve outs i hope we can make sure that any caster out domestic victim's don't get concluded in this lengths and that would have the strongest impact to make sure we're protecting our community in calling the police. colleagues, i know we have various, you know, colleagues that want to make some comment and i want to provide some floor floor for you to do so. i want to thank my sponsor we had 8 and we're in a strong position to negotiate a measure
3:21 pm
that will get voted on today so we can have pride in san francisco to get this passed. i do want to have the sheriff come up i know the sheriff has expressed some concerns that we're operationally making this legislation as effective as it can be and mr. sheriff and a actually, if i could ask the members of the public to take our seats so folks behind you - (clapping) and if i could ask i always have this role we don't express support out of reporter but i appreciate the hands.
3:22 pm
thank you >> it might be most appropriate i know the amendments that have a concern of you, we can have you speak when the amendments are provided and we'll have the items to share our concern. >> thank you supervisor avalos and colleagues. we just received the official amendments at 1:36 p.m. that was time stamped and sent to our office. we're doing our best to process them. as you know i articulated my support of the legislation but where i've seen some changes in the legislation do process some operational concerns. i don't think it interrupts what i can tell our preceding here today but i ask that in the
3:23 pm
course of this week before second reading that my office either with supervisor avalos or kim or whoever that there be a consulting on the operational concerns. we're mike focused to be sure whoever is in our staff including the line deputy at 2:00 a.m. is prepared to do the expressed content of what this is to be. the unattended consequence is what brings me here before you today >> with that colleagues. >> thank you sheriff. >> yes. >> other comments? supervisor kim. >> thank you so i have the tough task of introducing the amendments today. i want to say that the last two
3:24 pm
amendments are been tough for us as we discuss and negotiate this policy. you mean it is very clear that everyone in the room wants to make sure we're doing everything we can in this criminal justice system to make our community safer. the u. the u.s. immigration is to target the offenses but everyone in this room the program casts too far a net and it shows in california 7 out of tentacle forbearance as of 2013 had no convictions. so we believe that sf program is a deeply flawed. i want to thank the members
3:25 pm
while we continue to be a leader in advancing what's right. i want to recognize supervisor avalos it was the members in the community but i think it's important to recognize supervisor avalos and his staff. it's a ton of work and i know the president of the united states that's it what's that is like. we've heard from the citizens in the city they don't feel safe because they could get deported themselves. i share the story from last week you have seen walking down our hallways talking about his home that was burglarized but didn't
3:26 pm
call the police because of the fear of being dporlt. f this ordinance is important to build the trust in our public safety infrastructure. no one should fear calling the police when they need help. i'm excited about the passage for that reason i know there are angst and emotions on both sides on the amendments in order to insure passage of this organized. many are worried that any carve outs will continue to chill the public's willingness to seek help or serve witnesses and also waste valuable but limited resources on minimal crime. resources that could be used elsewhere incarceration is high
3:27 pm
therefore it's important but at the same time we've heard that the charge of the folks with the public safety they need to retain some form of discretion in order to do their job. so i'm introducing a set of amendments that i believe will as narrowly as possible address concerns on both sides setting a clear standard that will talk about the people who would be let go out of the incarceration. the dpoeldz are focusing open the goals with the most serious convictions. law firm will make sure that the
3:28 pm
public safety ofbdz are being met and the only time that law enforcement will honoring an immigration hold is is if the immigrant is counted of a felon or felony assault with a deadly weapon and on top of of that is currently being charged with one of those crimes. there's a 7 year look back from that release and even at that point law enforcement will be required to take the evidence of rehab and status of a victim of domestic victim and status of u.s. children and other factors on whether or not to hold some place. upon effective date of immigration reform hoechl e
3:29 pm
hopefully, we'll win the carve amendment will expire but not the legislation itself. last because you want to insure with the precise tension of this legislation the sheriff must report the times when he or she has exercised this discretion so we can maintain over sighted over the policy and with supervisors wiener's request we'll have six months after that. a lot of tough conversations i know that many of our legislation staff members are is been working on that i want to recognize supervisor cowen's office and ivy from my office. and optimistic the many advocates. it's a compromise so no one walked out with everybody they wanted and it's important we
3:30 pm
educate our community and prettiest that speak the language of our communities about what the outcomes of this legislation is that it's safe to come forward that you'll not be deported important reporting the crimes. if there's a classed of individual that pose a threat to public safety whether or not their citizens we should look at all the safeguards to hold those are folks. we shouldn't treat you differently if you pose a threat to the safety of the public and ultimate we want to look further into that conversation. i believe those amendments does establish a strong balance for now and aid the concerns raised by many in the community. the amendments are before us today. i at one point make one
